    Great names that come to mind: Antaeus, Kouros, Shalimar, Chantilly, Le Heure Bleu, Samsara (Guerlain has had a lot of great names!) Magie Noir, Poeme, Obsession, Jicky (it works for some reason)... Insense, Ambush Oh the list goes on and on.

    Some not so great: Very Irresistable (kind of confusing), Intrusion, Tabu, Lolita Lempika for men, the Baron, I suppose this list goes on and on too!

    Yeah some names simply sound right while others completely don't.
    For example, the name Knize has a certain charm for me, as well as all Diptique's strange names, while Penhaglion's totally don't.

    Worst: BU (by Coty, btw.), oh, and let's not forget the almost legendary VO, made (or remade) famous a few days ago, but, since I cannot get graphical or offensive, I won't repeat what the initials stand for

    There are so many offensive, incongruous and absurd names, it almost doesn't seem worthwhile to try. However, I can make a quick summary:

    Offensive names are just wrong (several have are 'already listed). Almost any fragrance that has 'pour Homme' appended to a famously fruity floral fragrance is just weird (think Tiffany for Men'). And lastly, anything so long and stupid sounding that you think it must be a joke ('L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme Souffle D'Issey'). I mean, really!

    However... There are some pronounceable and punchy names I like: Kouros, Aramis, Habit Rouge, Farenheit, Timbuktu, l'Anarchist, Declaration.

    By the way, I mentioned only masculines, above (since this is the masculine thread and I try to accomodate) but wouldn't it have been great if Safari, Byzance, Jaipur, Cinnabar, Opium, Shalimar, Tuscany and Tuxedo (!) were branded onto 'masculine' fragrances?

    Oranges and Lemons Say The Bells of St. Clement's could go on either list. Personally, I like it.

    Well, this is my third attempt to reply to this post. For some reason, it's not working. Anyway, I propose, Cumming. You can decide if it's the best or worst!

    While we're on the subject, could someone tell me how "Kouros" is actually pronounced?
